Hulaween Pics Coming Through

Well the festivities have been well on their way, so I thought I’d throw some select pics in the gallery. All ya gotta do is: Click Here Photo: Kambouris (Bette with Sheryl Crow) I have no clue as to what Bette is…Mother Nature or the Green Goddess (but I think that’s a salad dressing if I’m not mistaken!) I’d also like to know what song she and Sheryl Crow sang, if any. BTW, Sheryl looks hot! Also note that the Charity Buzz OnLine Auction will be going on till November 8, 2007 Thanks for your time… Love, Mister D PS: I’ll be putting up more photos or links as I find them… Here’s some links to keep up with the festivities: Wire Image Daily News Pix Video from ET: Click Here This is where we learn she is “The Goddess of the Forest”

Well Crap: Missprint on Wire Image About Susan Midler

I have been informed by the angel over my shoulder, Wendy, that the WireImage Photo said to be Bette and sis, Susan, is not correct. It is believed to be Winnie Holzman, who wrote the book for the musical, “Wicked.” So somebody got something wrong…. Anyway, I wanted to make that correction. Thank you Wendy! Love, Mister D PS: The embarrassing thing is that I sent the photo to Miss M’s office because I thought she might want a nice pic of her and her sister!!!! LOL

A Little Bit About The “Spell”

Mister D: I just thought this article was rather interesting. The song “I Put A Spell On You” has been around a long time with many different versions recorded with varied interpretations. And it’s Halloween time, so it’s appropriate. THE SCARIEST SONG. From: The Sunday Telegraph London Date: October 28, 2007 Author: PAUL MORLEY YOU COULD CONJURE UP A FINE, disquieting Halloween soundtrack using various uncanny and unlikely versions of Screamin’ Jay Hawkins’s sleazy, psycho-hypnotic I Put a Spell on You. You would naturally feature Nina Simone’s blessed 1965 take, which turned an apparent near-novelty tune into a supreme, cathartic expression of soul and sexuality. The song became such a part of her repertoire that it formed the title of her 1992 autobiography. Singers such as Van Morrison, Ray Charles, Bryan Ferry, Joe Cocker and Nick Cave all felt the song’s menacing voodoo vamp suited their particular masculine philosophies. Belgian fusion singer Natacha Atlas made it an exotic hymn to the ecstatic. The Animals and the Eels fed on it. Grisly, blood-curdling versions by Tim Curry, Bonnie Tyler, Bette Midler and Marilyn Manson paid rocky homage to the song’s weird combination of the wanton and the wacky. Southern swamp-rock masters Creedence Clearwater Revival opened their 1968 debut album with the song, and their fiendish guitar-hot version is a candidate with Simone’s for the second-best of all time.

Updates: 10-24-2007

Hey Everybody! What’s on your mind???? Just wanted to remind everyone that the Charity Buzz Auction starts today. So register and bid if you can to help out NYRP. It’s fun and it’s always full of great prizes. I’ve put up a slew of new pictures (with more to come) and a few more videos (you’ve probably seen them all anyway since they are around the internet) But these are for the folks who don’t have the time to do the searching. Also Bruce Vilanch has honored me by letting me call his site…his Official Fan Page…so I’m very excited about that. So keep checking out his site at www.wegotbruce.com. He stays just as busy as Ms. M Speaking of Ms M and busyness…she has so many events coming up, so keep your eyes and ears open by reading her site, www.bettemidler.com, and, of course, Bootleg Betty…. Much Love, Mister D
